Bald Eagle Area graduate Kayla Confer played a key role in Lebanon Valley’s upset of Babson College in the Bowdoin Quad over the weekend.
Confer, a senior captain of the Lebanon Valley women’s volleyball team, had 11 kills in the five-set upset of the second-ranked team in the Division III New England Region, which had been riding a 15-match winning streak. Lebanon Valley fell behind 2-1 before coming back to tie the match with a 25-21 win in the fourth set, then taking the fifth 15-5.
Earlier in the week she contributed six kills in a record-setting offensive performance against Hood, when Lebanon Valley put together the best attacking performance in school history with a .416 hitting percentage. Confer was error-free while hitting .667 in the match, and as a team the Dutchwomen hit .688 in the second set.
For the season Confer is second on the team in kills with 210 and has 50 digs, 27 blocks, three aces and one assist.
Lebanon Valley is 20-5.
